The 2015 Christmas

I love celebrate Christmas in other country, well we did that last year at Singapore Universal Studio.

Hopefully in near future, I can experience a white snowy Christmas.

At homeland, the festive feel is still strong, everywhere is so into festive mood, with big malls beautifully decorated and everyone jolly for the season no matter what religion you are. But, one thing to remember, Christmas is to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. He is only the reason for Christmas, others than that it is just the fun is all about. Blehh..

December is always my favorite month, fills with holiday, Chinese Winter solstice (冬至), Christmas and gathering. This year even though we stay at home, but still a lot for us to do. Visiting mall is one of it and sales and events is everywhere. For the year with GST price hike, nothing we bought is cheap nowadays, so look out for sales is the only thing we can do when go for shopping.

We visited 3 big malls since the beginning of December. Pavilion Kuala Lumpur having the "Christmas Sparkles" with the Tallest Swarovski Christmas tree in Asia, at the same time brought my young one attended Pavilion Junior Club Christmas Sparkles Ball. Sunway Pyramid having theme "Christmas in Atlantis" and Mid Valley Megamall theme "The Elves Town Christmas".

On the Christmas eve night, we celebrated at church with my family. This year is the simplest one, unlike all the past years we did in larger scale. We have kid's performance, message by Pastor and then a Christmas refreshment. We save the best day on Christmas Day for the unseen society. "It is more blessed to give than to receive" 施比受更有福, a few of our church members actually go out served the poorer and not so lucky one, they are refugees from Myanmar. We contribute some money, buy foods and donate old usable stuff for them.

On the Boxing Day, finally I make it to date my dear friend out for a short gathering at Le Pont Boulangerie.. This is an French style bakery and cafe. They are famous with waffle, we taste these:

That's the summary of my December, it is simple and quiet one.
